. Washington , Dr C. , July C , ' 84.
The American popple seem to take it
for granted that for the summer months
at least , the President is justified in
abdicating his power and leaving the
government , to take care of itself. Of
all thalineof presidents , from Washing
ton down to the nineteenth , Grant was
the first chief magistrate who had ever
'taking a .summer junketing. Mr. Lincoln
in the last summer of his life slept
occasionally out at the Soldier's tlome ,
but in his four years' administration ,
he never left Washington. Nor was it
particularly because of the existence
of war and the supervision of military
affairs that detained him , because these
duties could as well have been performed
from any otherlicadquartersbut31r. Lin
coin would not establish the precedent of
leaving the Capital and the duties of his
high position , simply because of the cli
mate and its malarious accompaniments.
Yet the Washington of to-day is infinitely
moie healthful then it was then , and the
necrology of the White House shows but
two Presidential demises-that of Harri
son who was killed , not by malaria but
by the office-hunters , and that of Taylor
who ate too heartily of ice-cream that
was flavored with the same villainous
vanilla that afterwards poisoned Mr.
Buchanan and others at the National
Hotel , and is now slaughtering the youth
and beauty of our land.
This leads me to mention that J\Ir. \ Ar
thur , who has never spent a summer in
Washington , never intends to. As soon
as Congress is done with its work , the
President will go in the Dispatch straight
to Newport , and during the summer will
go up and down the eastern coast , fishing
around Poppysquash Point , digging
clauis at Squantum and eating them at
the Gut. How the President will spend
his days of retirement after the 4th of
March next , is a problem vgiich even
he cannot solve. He can hardly assume
any prominence in the political world ,
for the dignity of his retirement will be
above that , whatever it may have been in
the time of John Qincy Adams.
The prospect of Congress coming to
an adjournment as early as the third
of July or the fifth , is not so flattering.
The fight over the fortifications bill
promises to be both long and desperate.
Indeed it would not be surprising if this
part of the appropriation may not go
over entirely to the next session , for
what does the country want of fortifica
tions anyhow ? If Congress Avould go to
work and do something toward rendering
our navy something like respectable ,
we could well forego any necessity for
fortifications or coast defences of any
kind. As I have hitherto written , the >
Chicago ( which is said to be the best
specimen of marine architecture that
the Government has ever turned out '
of its own account ) has proved a dismal
Failure so far as fighting qualities and
seaworthiness are concerned.
By the first of September the Wash
ington Monument will have attained a
height of 500 feet , when the shape of
the structure will be changed to that a
of a pyramid , to continue on Jfor 55 feet )
to ihe apex , which will be the completion
of the monument proper. The dedica
tion of this grand memorial will take
place on the 22d of February next , just s <
thirty 3Tcars from the date of the laying
af the corner-stone. One of the peculiar
ind appropriate features of the dedica
tory exercises will be the delivery of
the oration by HonltobertC. Tyinthrop ,
f Boston , the same orator who officiated
ihirty years ago. The ceremonies atteud-
mt upon the dedication will be the
iiost elaborate that have every taken
jlaec upon a like occasion in this coun- e. :
ry , Congress having by joint resolution
ippointed a committee of both houses , i
mipowered to make such arrangements
is will be appropriate to so august an
iccasion. The whole cost of the monu-
uent when completed will be not less
han $1,250,000 , but to the everlasting
lisgrace of some of those who had the
nanipulation of the funds when the orig-
nal Monument Association undertook
he work , about one-third of this amount :
vas stolen from the fund.
EXAMPLES are few of men ruined by
jiving. Men are heroes in spending ,
sravens in what they give.
THIS hot weather dampens the linen
of the starchiest dude on the street
and makes him umcomfortable in
mind and body , but , bless you , how
it does make the corn grow. Out of
the com , if we have plenty of it , may
b'e made ne\v dudes and more starch.
A LITTLE girl of this city hit it very
happily , yesterday , wlien she said one
reason why she was glad her father had
quit drinking was because he sent her to
the butcher shop now to buy beefsteak
instead of to beg liver as she used to do.
There is nothing left to be said , for a
neat temperance lecture.-Lincoln Jour
nal , July 4th.
THE Fitz John Porter case has finally
been shelved. The bill for his rein
statement passed both branches of the
National Legislature , and was vetoed by
the President. The House immediately
passed it over the Chief Executive's
veto by a vote of 1G § to 78 , but the
Senate failed to pass the bill by a tie
vote 27 to 27. "Only a little while
longer' ' Fitz John singeth.
THE same old story "didn't know it
was loaded , " comes from Plattsmouth ,
where a boy pointed a supposed empty
revolver at a young lady. It. was too
well loaded and the aim could not have
been more certain. The lady was deaden
on the instant , and the boy in jail has
has an excellent opportunity to ruminate
upon his folly. A few years in the
penitentiary might have a wholesome
effect upon him and serve as an admoni
tion to others who indulge in such idiotic
IP the best man God ever made ran
for the presidency , he would have to
wade chin-deep through obloquy.
The first target was put up two weeks
ago , and the next will be put up two
weeks hence. The target with the
most holes in it will be elected presi
dent. Defamation elected Garfield ,
Lincoln and Jackson. As soon as a
man achieves anything by brilliancy ,
sloquence or statesmanship , all the
liounds of hell are turned against
THE nomination of James G. Blaine
aas opened a new industiy. A Maine
nan has applied for letters-patent for
ihe manufacture of plumes from wood
fiber and other fluffy materials which
3an be cheaply made , and , at the
same time , are very ornamental and
lurable. He claims to be able to
aroduce a plume eighteen or twenty
nces in length that can be sold for 1
50 or 75 seuts , which , for campaign
r street parade purposes , is as good
is a § 5 feather. As the plume is the
imblem in the campaign for the "
'plumed knight , " the demand must
3e large for that purpose. Bee.
THE refreshing innocence of the
Kansas press is distinctly shown by
he remark flf an editor down there
he other day , to the effect that "Mr.
ind : Mrs. Blanke were agreeable stir- '
rised yesterday by an addition to
heir family. " Now , as all good little
ihildren understand these matters ,
Here is a sort of mythical surprise on
occsions , but an editor ought to
mow better. Though , on second
bought , it may be that way down in
Kansas. But in the well ordered
louseholds of Nebraska these little
svents are carefully and joyously an-
Xowymy dear , " said a candidate's
vife , "I don't wish to throw the slight-
st obstacle in the way of your elec-
ion , and if you choose to turn the
louse into a beer garden , and have
ill the loafers in town tramping on
ny carpets and filling my curtains
vith tobacco smoke , and drinking
vhiskyoutofmy best teacups , I shan't
ay a word. But I want you distinctly

THE Prince of Wales comes arouiu
again with his little schedule of debts
amounting to a round million , and says
his mamma wcn't pay a cent of them
Parliament will have to come to the
rescue of the creditors. The prince
always lets them run up to a million
before he turns them over to the public
for settlement. The queen is too
thrifty to waste any money on the heir
apparent. Her income is enormous
and her expenses very light , and Wale ?
has to do all the honors and bear the
brunt of the expense , and always will
have his nose to the grindstone so long
as he is kept waiting. Journal.
THOSE "starving" Indians in Eastern
Montana , who have been reported as
feeding on range cattle , are now believed
by the secretary of the interior to be a
party of Black Kettle's band , who have
been living in the Tongue river valley
ior the last four years. If this is the
case the secretary of the interior says
that they will not be disturbed. They
surrendered to Gen. Miles atFortKeogh ,
after the war in which Sitting Bull
surrenderd , and the general permitted
them to remain where they are now
instead of sending them to a reservation.
He disarmed them , and sold most of
their ponies , using the proceeds to buy-
plows , wagons and cattle. They settled
down to farming voluntarily ; broke their
ponies to plows and wagons , built them
selves houses , and have been very suc
cessful. Several of the Indians have
entered homesteads and are living upon
them. They have received no aid what
ever from the government , except the
first winter after the war , when they
wove furnished a small quantity of flour
by the war department. Until recently
they have been theoretically prisoners of
war , having never been officially turned
over to the care of the Indian bureau by
the army , and have no agent. It is the
only instance in history where migratory
Indians have voluntary commenced
farming and have been self-supporting ,
and the secretary of the interior will
see that they are protected. It may
be that they are having trouble with
the ranchmen and have killed cattle ,
but it is more probable that the ranch
men are trying to drive them out of a
good grazing valley. Bee.
now another illusion is gone.
If there is a fiend 011 earth it is the
wood cut man who sends out to coun
try papers those horrid caricatures
of distinguished men and women.
\Ve would like to meet him in some
dark ravine and cut him up with a
cleaver and feed him to hogs. After
doing that we would weep for a week
because justice was so feeble and
weak an-1 full of shortcomings. The
matter with us now is another disen
chantment. We stood bravely the
picture of Blaine that made him look
like a country cloth peddler who used
his note for a foot rule , we gazed with
complacency upon Logan in the air
and attitude of a convict being sen
tenced , AVC didn't even puzzle to un
derstand how Ben Butlers's left eye
got aiound under his right ear. We
bad always read and heard that Mrs.
Log'aij was a charming woman , fine
looking , well preserved , intelligent ,
amiable , spirited and all that made a
fine type of America's fair daughters.
But the engraver has laid his sacri-
lirrious hand upon a block of wood
and sent it out labeled "Mrs. John
A. Logan. " The hair looks like the
dirt thrown up from a spaded ditch ,
the forehead like a piece of plowed
ground , the eyes like lemon stains on
blue calico , the nose like a potato and
die jest of the features as though the
general effect had been kiln dried.
Now a man who will do that ought v
to be killed. He is evidently in the
pay of the opposition. No living
woman can possibly resemble the As
syrian contortion that is palmed oiF
DII us as the picture of the wife of the
next Yice-President. Topics.
